Onisac has no real meaning other than the word “casino” spelled backward.  It was chosen in remembrance of the move our family had to bear when our grandmother, Rebecca of Native American and African descendants born in Georgia in the 1850s married a Native American then fled to Michigan to avoid Georgia’s miscegenation laws only that he latter be killed in Sault Saint Marie. The spirit she left in us and not the fleeing of Georgia inspired the creation of this website. After the death of our grandfather she was left alone with her young child, Mittie Belle without work skills to struggle for survival.  Her relying on the Street Lottery of the 1920s for hope motivated her daughter Mittie Belle to compose Belle’s Notes, and us to compile them into Belle’s Dream Diary and later to create this website.
