[xmca] "informants as lames"

I am looking for a reference to the problem of anthropological fieldwork
that arises because people who are likely to
interact with an outsider to the community are themselves likely to be
marginal within their own communities. The phrase
that comes to mind is "lames."

Can anyone help?
