A Partaker of the Blood of the Canaanites

This seems to tie Abraham into the Book of Moses, with its story of the people of Canaan upon whom a curse of blackness falls.

That tends to suggest that if Moses and Abraham both contain pseudonymous history, Moses is first and Abraham second.  I need to do a lot more exploration, but my intuition is that Moses contains an account of the righteous priests from Isaiah to Josiah's reforms, maybe including Lehi, and Abraham is an account of Josiah's time and a different migration.
