I find it very difficult to take down buildings when playing with the Sioux...especially in Age 2.

If I were playing against Sioux, I would most definitely use towers more often than against other civs.

What do other Sioux players do to combat this deficency? The only solution that I really have is to use the war dance, but this is difficult to do in Colonial because of the number of villies it requires to be effective...

Any suggestions?

Towers are very efficient against Sioux since towers rape cav's HP, and because axes have a lower HP than attack, you can use this to your advantage. In addition like you already said, Sioux have no age2 siege, clubs just don't cut it. Lastly, cetans now have pretty low HP (95 I think?) too, which makes this matter worse.

Your best bet is to raid them and attack before they turtle up, and when/if they do get some towers up, keep them from towering up new resources will raiding "weak" areas in which have little protection.

Then go age3 relatively quickly and use the siege dance to your advantage.

yes siege is def. one of their weak spots. as good as they are, there are ways to take them down if not played very well.

Keep harassing them. Try to get the axe rider shipment before they get towers, and if you're lucky you could catch them building or kill some wagons.

with map control you should be able to outboom them using

firepit. If you don't think you can do that maybe try massing age 2 forces.

with enough clubs you will eventually tear their base down. usually if a person is towering up its b/c they are going fortress and don't want to make units. (spanish) fall back and go fortress.

or they are trying to make their base unraidable. in this case just put warhuts all around. or do something to make them starve.

I think there is also a Fire Dance which increases damage done to buildings.

There is, and it is there for a reason. It is the only way for Sioux to get those buildings down.
