Early life and family

Amora Jean Snowbird Brown was born on November 18, 1994 in Alaska, USA, to parents Billy Bryan Brown and Amora Larene “Amy” Branson Brown. She has five older brothers namely Matthew William, Joshua Bambam, Solomon Isaiah Freedom, Gabriel Starbuck, Noah Darkcloud and a younger sister named Merry Christmas Katherine Raindrop. Her parents raised them in the Alaskan wilderness, as depicted in the reality TV show “Alaskan Bush Family.”

Even at a young age, Snowbird proved to be fiercely independent, much to her older brothers’ dismay, as they enjoyed the thought of caring for a little sister or pushing around. She loves the outdoors and was born a naturalist; she learned to hunt and fish, and spent most of her time climbing mountains or walking along rivers. Growing up, she collected many pets, including cats, dogs, frogs, and red eared sliders. She and her siblings are unfamiliar with most modern technologies, having spent most of their lives in their isolated community in the Alaskan wilderness. They are also not updated with pop culture.

Snowbird grew up not knowing her grandparents, as her paternal grandparents died quite early and her mother was estranged from her maternal grandparents for years; her maternal uncle claimed her father’s controlling nature was to blame for the estrangement. The uncle said Billy made sure that her mother would be separated from her relatives.


There is no information about her educational background as the family has lived in the Alaskan wilderness for the past 30 years before the family’s reality TV aired.

She did not attend a traditional school or formal education, but was home-schooled by her mother, as were her siblings.


Snowbird became a TV personality when her family’s adventures for survival in the Alaskan wilderness were documented by the Discovery Channel in the form of the reality TV show “Alaskan Bush People.” While the show is marketed as a docudrama/reality show of the Brown family living far away from modern society, it is also a scripted series. Season 1 premiered in May 2014 with just five episodes, but has now aired 85 episodes across 11 seasons, proving that the show’s popularity has grown over the years.

She gained a loyal following through the show, and her fans were impressed that she can help feed the family through hunting and fishing. She has a wide opening on her upper front teeth and the viewing public remains baffled as to why her family doesn’t take her to the dentist and get it fixed.

Private life

It is difficult to get information about the personal lives of most reality TV stars as they portray certain versions of their real persona on TV.

Discovery Channel has not released exact timelines for their show, and with many allegations that it is fake, there is a mystery surrounding the Brown family. The public has a hard time figuring out what’s real and what’s fake.

Her mother was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer, and the family was forced to stay in Los Angeles for a while to be close to their mother who was being treated at the University of California, Los Angeles Medical Center. They eventually moved to the Washington wilderness so that the family can easily move to Los Angeles if needed. Fortunately, her mother went into remission and was healthy again.

It sparked another rumor that Ami’s cancer and recovery was written, and so her UCLA Medical Center doctors confirmed that her illness and recovery was real. During the family’s time in Los Angeles, the youngest was said to be the only one who adapted well to city life. Snowbird and her older brothers struggled to get used to living among many people.

Snowbird is currently single and still lives with the family as they continue the tradition of a wolf pack even as they get older. Her brothers Gabe, Joshua and Noah decided to stay close to home, even though they now have their own families, and they were all featured on the show.

Interesting facts and rumors

  • In 2016, her family was charged with fraud and a felony for taking advantage of the state’s Permanent Fund by falsifying records when they submitted application forms stating that they were eligible for the Alaska residency requirements to take advantage of more than $20,000 from the state. However, it turned out that they were ineligible, requiring Alaskan residents to live in the state year round. Her father and older brother Joshua took the blame for the family, pleaded guilty to all charges and were sentenced to 30 days in prison with thousands of dollars in fines. They entered into a plea deal blaming the poor administration for living mostly isolated from the city.
  • The Brown fraud and felony case confirmed viewers’ assumption that everything about the family’s reality TV show was scripted. Apparently, Snowbird’s father and brother stated on the affidavits in court that they left the state as early as 2009 and did not return until 2012. This would disprove their claim on the show that the family spent the last 30 years in Alaska prior to the show’s 2014 premiere.
  • It was rumored that Snowbird was once pregnant when people noticed she was hiding what looked like a baby bump, but apparently she was just getting fatter and trying to hide her extra curves.


Snowbird is 1.65 m long, weighs 55 kg and is suitable for outdoor activities. Her most notable feature would be the gap in her upper front teeth. Snowbird is white and has blond hair and brown eyes.

Net value

sources estimated Snowbird’s net worth at $100,000, with an annual income of about $60,000, largely from the family’s reality TV show.
