Here's an easy explanation for who were the Red Paint People and where they were from
I saw that program on satellite TV again last night. Seems quite plausible to me. Heavy ice doesn't stop you, it just slows you down, and makes you change your direction. It also dampens the seas, and dries the air. In many ways, it may have made travel easier. In 1985, here in Newfoundland, we were completely surrounded by heavy ice for months. I flew from Newfoundland to Nova Scotia, and there was no open water in the Gulf of St. Lawerence (unusual). Later in the spring, after the ice had melted, the first ever coyotes were noted on the island of Newfoundland. They had crossed from Nova Scotia on the ice (minimum 100 miles). Looks like they are here for good, tearing up the new-born caribou, moose, etc.

Think the Caribou will survive?
We made a stop in Halifax once in the early 60's. We had been out in the North Atlantic (submarines) pretending to be a Soviet attacking force. When we would surface and I was the look-out, that was the coldest I've ever been...and, some of the roughest seas too.
