Alaskan Bush People star Bear Brown has trouble with modern journalism because he thinks reporters portray his family and Alaska in a negative light.
Brown bear from Alaskan bush people is less than impressed by a recent news report that exposed the wolf pack. The father-of-two has always stood up for his beliefs, especially when he feels he has been wronged. Now Bear is going after the people his family was close to when they lived in the bush.
The Browns (Ami, the late Billy, Matt, Bam, Noah, Gabe, Bear, Bird, and Rain) originally lived in the Alaskan wilderness. After thirty years of living off the land, the family was forced to leave their land due to Ami’s battle with cancer. They moved to the west coast. The family members all moved to the Pacific Northwest (Washington State), where they built a new “Browntown”. The Discovery Channel show documents the family and their goal of not becoming like other American families. The Browns have chosen to opt out of the culture they believe is hindering their growth, to the point where they can go six months without coming into contact with a stranger. The family members even have a unique accent and dialect, thanks to the years they spent isolated from other humans.
Last weekend, Bear took to his Instagram to defend himself (and the entire wolf pack) against enemies. It seems some Alaskans don’t like what Browns try to make with their show, and do not welcome them with open arms. A local named Mark Hofstad recently spoke with Alaska Public Media, after some of the Browns returned to the southeast coast earlier this month and stopped in Petersburg. Bear wrote that he was “ashamed” calling people like Mark Alaskans, and felt that real journalism was “dead.”
The news article in question says that many of Bear’s former friends and family weren’t exactly thrilled about the return of the wolf pack and the fact that the family had expressed an interest in buying land. Clearly, Mark has issues with the family, as he told the outlet that he approached the harbor patrol, asking officials to force the family to move their boat. He said, “Just because I don’t want to watch them.” It seems that Bear’s brother, Gabe also introduced himself and tried to shake hands, but the owner of the Norman the ship didn’t want to do that. Even a former neighbor named Jim Stanford called the family “crooks.”
There seems to be a lot of negative feelings about the Alaskan bush people the stars’ claims that they are Alaskans, which may stem from an incident in 2014 when six of the Browns were charged with permanent fund dividend (PFD) fraud. They had received payments to which they were not entitled. The PFD is restricted to Alaska citizens, as it allows true Alaskans to share in a portion of the state’s mining revenue. After Billy and Bam agreed to the plea deal, the rest of the charges were dropped and the family members had to repay the $21,000 given to them. Although it is clear that residents feel that family represents Alaskans like morons, Bear held onsharing his view that he and his family belong in the bush as much as anyone else.
