The vivid dreams that inspire his paintings reflect both timeless origin tales and the new world to come, drawing on “a thousand years of story.”

This new documentary, Rabbett Before Horses, with reflections from Ojibwe author Winona LaDuke and Madeline Island Museum Director Steve Cotherman, highlights the work of this talented Wisconsin artist, musician and theoretical mathematician, whose paintings reflect the culture of his community.
