Words I learned in prison

When I was a prisoner in USA at Pike County Prison in 2012 I learned the following 2 words/terminology which have different meanings in the world outside the prison:

1) Contraband: as defined by the rules of the prison (not by the law outside) nail clipper, prescription medication are contraband and are issued and must be used/consumed in the presence of prison officials.

2) Indiginous: When inmates are out of their financial resources and no one from outside sends them money than prisoners are classified as indiginous and prison provides certain necessities for free such as postage stamps, term is not used to refer to natives inside the prison.
