How to encode H3 geohash in regression model


I'm trying to train a random forest regression model based on a number of features, including location. I know that raw lat/long can't be used directly, so I've bucketed them using H3.

I'm struggling to figure out how to encode the hex grid IDs in the training data. The IDs are just 64bit integers, so can I just feed them directly into my model, or do I need to do another kind of encoding?
