    The city of Cambridge, Massachusetts, will now have a new name for Columbus Day.

    City counselors unanimously voted to rename the holiday "Indigenous Peoples' Day" on Monday night.

    The resolution commemorates indigenous people and recognizes the suffering they faced after Europeans invaded their land and killed native tribes.
