Abstract: The notion of a holonomy invariant cochain for a foliation is developed generalizing the idea of a holonomy invariant measure. An example is given on a foliation in which every leaf has exponential growth, and it is shown that if the inclusion of every leaf is trivial on $ {H_1}$ for a codimension one transversally oriented foliation, then holonomy invariant cochains generate all of the one dimensional cohomology.
