The state's new brand hasn't been around for a week and already Oklahoma officials were forced to revise the language in a new state branding website.

It comes after they received backlash over its exclusion of Native Americans' roots in the state.

Lieutenant Governor Matt Pinnell said that language wasn't "Inclusive of Oklahoma's rich Native American heritage."
