poor; destitute; impoverished
My family first came to this region as indigent farm laborers.
in (into, in, on, upon)#egere (to be in need, want) (Latin)
indigent == indian + gents (they are mostly poor, needy due to demands of their wives). hahahahhha The first 3 letters of Indigent is I. N. D which can be an acronym for I NEED DOLLARS!!!!
