According to Elder McConkie, the Nephites didn't have the Aaronic
priesthood, since at the time it was limited to the Levites. Hence, all
their ordinations were to the Melchizedek Priesthood.

Stephen:
Though this is off the main thread, it's an interesting side thread. I 
don't agree that "teacher" was a Melchizedek Priesthood office for the 
Nephites; the Melchizedek Priesthood was not generally held among the 
Jews, so I don't see why it would have been generally held among the 
Nephites, who were after all Jews and who were therefore under the law 
of Moses.
