Can I use no-normal distributed data with spatial statistics tools?

I have gathered from Tripadvisor the reviews number/hotel, for all the hotels of my region (population and not sample).
The distribution of that review's number is not normal
Can I directly apply spatial statistics through Arcgis like spatial auto-correlation (Moran's I), Hot-spot Analysis, etc or should I first transform the data so it is normal before proceeding?

Thank you very much!!
