    Property from the Michael Miller historical Blues autograph collection is being sold to benefit 'True Messages' a nonprofit supporting the indigenous Tarahumara Indian peoples and children of the Copper Canyons of Northern Mexico. True Messages honors the memory of Micah True (Caballo Blanco) who founded the famous Ultramarathon Caballo Blanco featured in the NY Times bestselling Born to Run novel to offer 'Korima' to the Tarahumara. Korima is a Tarahumara tenant that simply means 'sharing without expectation of return', because this is how it should be within a community.
