Canaan was cursed by Noah and made him the slave of Shem and Japheth. This happened after Ham told his brothers about Noah being drunk and naked in his tent.

The clans of Canaan scattered with their borders reaching from Sidon to Gerar and Gaza and then to Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, Zoboiim and Lasha.
