31. Define "tribal land"

Most of us consider all of the "New World" to be tribal land. Federal Indian Law sees it as what they define as "Indian Country." Popular misconception sees it contained strictly within reservation boundaries.
It (the pipeline and excavation) is not on the reservation, but passes close to it. However, most treaties (the supreme law of the land according to Article VI of the constitution) recognized, confirmed and preserved the peoples' rights to customary use of their ancestral treaty lands and waters. I don't know about the Fort Laramie treaty, but I'd guess the pipeline is violating those kinds of lands and waters.
