Linda ‘Trudy’ Longbottom
‘The Government should have brought the Queen to La Perouse, to see our conditions of life, and to give us a deed to the land there that is rightly ours.’
Trudy Longbottom was a community leader from La Perouse. She was a staunch land rights campaigner, helping to establish the NSW Aboriginal Land Council in 1977.
