The curse of Canaan

In today’s religion lesson we read about Canaan’s curse. Noah was the first man to till the ground after the flood, and one of his crops were grapes. Noah made wine with the grapes and drank the wine thus getting drunk. In Noah’s drunkenness he lays in his tent naked his son, Ham sees him. Ham seeing his father naked and sins. When Ham sinned, Noah curses him and his descendants especially Canaan he said “Canaan you will be a slave to your brothers”.  Noah blesses his two other sons Japheth and Shem who take a blanket and walk backwards to cover their father in order to not see Noah naked.
