dS/CFT correspondence, a holographic duality for de Sitter gravity, has not been well understood compared to AdS/CFT. We propose a class of dS/CFT correspondence between three-dimensional de Sitter spaces and two-dimensional CFTs. We argue that such a CFT includes an SU(2) WZW model in the critical level limit k->-2, which corresponds to the classical limit of the gravity side. This dS/CFT can be generalized to the higher-spin gravity on de Sitter space, which is dual to SU(N) WZW model with the limit k->-N. We confirm that under this proposed duality the classical partition functions in the gravity side can be reproduced from CFT calculations. Moreover, we analyze two-point functions and entanglement entropy in our dS/CFT correspondence.
