Remembering Nehemiah: Dear Friend and Local Legend

Jan 4, 2022

The Island School community will sincerely miss Nehemiah Taylor as our local legendary fisherman. He was a good friend to many and shared his kindness, insight and passion with our students and staff over the years. Miah, as everyone called him, grew up in Little Creek, Andros, spent time in Nassau, but called Eleuthera home. He loved the sea and grew up from a young age fishing. Over the years he would come to campus and share his knowledge and enthusiasm with our students taking them out on the banks and teaching them how to dive up conch. He offered his insight into the steady and tragic decline of the conch fishery and other important fisheries. He enjoyed sharing his skills as a fisherman as well as his life stories and his culture.
